  Chessical: According to the Gambit Press for whom he is an author: "Lasha Janjgava is a grandmaster from Georgia, and President of the Tbilisi Chess Federation. He has represented his country four times in chess olympiads, and has built up a formidable reputation as a very hard player to beat".
Apr-02-08  The Chess Express: I have his book "The Petroff". In my opinion he's an excellent author. He gives high quality in depth analysis.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: He also wrote a good book on the KID and Gruenfeld Fianchetto systems. But I wish I knew how to pronounce his name.
Nov-11-15  TheFocus: <But I wish I knew how to pronounce his name.>

'La' as in "fa la la la la la."

'Sha' as in "Sha Na Na."

I hope that helps.

  Domdaniel: <Focus> I *knew* somebody would say that. I even suspected it might be you.

Are you certain it's not 'Las' as in "Lassie Come Home" and 'Ha' as in "Ha ha ha"?
